Reviewed 15 March 2013

Our family stayed at the historic Rainbow Courts for 2 nights. This was a very attractive, clean B&B. They have several casitas on the property which were already booked. We will try to get one of these next time. Our room was very nice and the prices are extremely reasonable. Plus, the people at Rainbow Courts were just like everyone else we met in Rockdale...super friendly and welcoming. We took a short walk and stumbled upon a beautiful old church nearby - clearly in need of rennovations, but still charming.

Room Tip: Book early to make sure you getthe room you want...there are lots of choices.

Family owned and run, Rainbow Courts is a wonderful surprise for travelers to the area. Current owners, Joan and Dan Ratliff (the motel has been in Joan's family since its inception), have settled back in Rockdale, TX and brought their global aesthetic with them. The rooms are thoughtfully appointed and wonderfully comfortable. Whether you are in the area on business or just want to get out and enjoy the Texas countryside, plan a stay at the Rainbow Courts - you won't be disappointed!

Room Tip: We have stayed here many times and experienced most all the rooms. They are are great, but if you a...

Was in Rockdale for work and I expected a generic motel or hotel. Instead, I got Rainbow Courts -- a little hidden surprise with deeply comfortable bed and arm chair, thick towels, and pretty/unique decor. I hope to come back for a getaway!

The best $90 motel/hotel/B&B room I have ever had. Spacious separate cottage with kitchenette. Quick business trip so I didn't see much beyond my room but more at home than a standard motel/hotel. Highly recommend to anyone for a one night stay or weekend getaway.

Love Love Love very nice overnight stay. I was looking for an affordable (cheap) place to stay overnight in Rockdale Texas. The other places in the area started at 79.00. I got a room at the Rainbow Bed & Breakfast for 59.00. I was so pleasantly surprised the room was small but so neat and tidy. The bed spread was absolutely beautiful. The bed was sooooo comfortable. Free wifi, cable tv, in the office there are snacks and coffee and teas for you as well. No pool but the grounds are perfectly manicured. I and family members sat out in the yard and enjoyed the visiting and the beautiful surroundings. I cannot say enough good about the Rainbow Bed & Breakfast and its staff.

Just back from a great weekend event hosted at Rainbow Courts. The grounds are perfect for a casual gathering. The cottages and motel units offer a chance for "down time" while remaining close to the group events. Staff is great and can make arrangements for dining and other events in the area. Go local. Get off the Interstates.

Room Tip: It's like staying at your great-uncle's place in a country town in 1963.

Really cute, comfortable, price was right. This is a motel with character that has been really well renovated. We were only there for a quick stopover on the way home, but wish we could've stayed longer. Lots of thoughtful touches, especially the breakfast, coffee, and snacks that were available very early in the morning.
